Edouard Mendy Pulls Off INCREDIBLE Double Save To Deny Liverpool In The Carabao Cup Final

Edouard Mendy has proved why he’s one of the most highly-rated goalkeepers in world football with an incredible double save in the Carabao Cup final against Liverpool.

The two sides played out a hugely entertaining first half at Wembley, which somehow ended goalless.

Liverpool came close to taking the lead after half an hour.

Naby Keita, who started the game after Thiago Alcantara was ruled out with an injury in the warm-up, let fly from 25 yards out but his shot was well stopped by Mendy.

The Chelsea goalkeeper could only parry Keita’s shot back into play, however, allowing his Senegal team-mate Sadio Mane the chance to put Liverpool ahead.

Mane fired a shot on target but Mendy showed incredible reflexes to get back to his feet and deflect the ball over the bar.

"I can't believe Mendy got across to that!,” said Sky Sports commentator Gary Neville.

Chelsea fans on social media were equally impressed with Mendy, who was playing his first match in the Carabao Cup this season in place of Kepa Arrizabalaga.

“Save of the season by Mendy there. Phenomenal,” wrote one fan.

Another added: “Point blank save from Mendy! The best GK in the world for a reason.”

Chelsea would have a huge chance of their own just before the half-time interval.

Mason Mount was played through on goal by Kai Havertz but the England international could only volley wide when it looked easier to score.
